I have a rather interesting Sisterlocks™ journey. I consider myself to be a certified job hopper. You name it I’m sure I have tried it. I was a college student at Wayne State University so money was always tight. In the beginning, I had no interest in taking the class. I kept thinking four days that’s a long time and a lot of money. After a year of watching so many excited women get out of my moms chair and seeing her build her Sisterlocks™ business, I was ready to help. I knew she needed the help but she would not teach me. She demanded that I take the Sisterlocks™ class to even help her with my dad or my brother.
I noticed that the Sisterlocks™ class was going to be in Michigan in August 2007. So I talked to my mom about it. Initially, she thought I was going to quit school. I assured her that I wasn’t quitting school. Next thing I knew I was signed up for the class. I was so excited I called off of my Day Care job pretending to be sick. Right after the class I retightened my brothers’ hair. I worked with my mom while she did her clients. A week after that, my mom wanted me to take care of one of her clients. It took four hours with no breaks, unlike with my brother I could stop whenever I wanted.
It has been fun having my mom mentor me, and working in the salon has been entertaining as well. All we do all day is crack jokes especially during locking sessions. Watching my mother’s business grow has been so inspiring. I also help plan the salon activities like the Holiday Party. I am hooked on doing Sisterlocks™. Who would have thought how much fun it would be.
